Decode URLs from The Great Suspender after a browser restart fails to reload them

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/16

Hosted at: Decode URLs from The Great Suspender after a browser restart fails to reload them

Converts URLs like these:
chrome-extension://klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg/suspended.html#url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.barryodonovan.com%2F2012%2F06%2F29%2Fmigrating-svn-with-branches-and-tags-to-git
back into
http://www.barryodonovan.com/2012/06/29/migrating-svn-with-branches-and-tags-to-git

Source below.

It decodes a URL encoded by The Great Suspender which is a cool Google Chrome plugin that suspends pages after some idle time.

The uncool thing is that when Google Crome restarts after a crash (it’s software, it does that, especially as it consumes truckloads of memory and is full of memory leaks) it often fails to restore some (but not many) of the suspended pages into a usable state: it shows only the encoded URLs.

How to enable JavaScript in your browser and why

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/02

Just in case it’s not enabled yet: How to enable JavaScript in your browser and why

It even has some html to redirect to it, which I’ve replaced with the wayback machine (and put into a gist as WordPress kills noscript tag blocks and everything they contain.

I needed it as at a client site, one of the embedded devices would show the message “Javascript is required to use this web portal” in various web browsers so I had to check the JavaScript status in each browser.

PSA: If you were signed out of your Google account tonight, don’t worry [Update] – 9to5Google

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/24

I had to re-logon to my mobile phone, but not my web browser. It seems this was due to a glitch at Google, but doesn’t remove my suspicion when I see this message come up in the future. So I did check account activity at these links:

Casting the audio of application on your Linux machine via Chrome to a ChromeCast

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/06

Hopefully by now mkchromecast [WayBack] works on more Linux versions (and maybe even Mac OS X is better supported [WayBack]), but back then it was only available for Ubuntu 16.10 and up:

Do you want to stream the audio from Rhythmbox, VLC or another Linux app to your TV through Chromecast? Well, we’ve found a nifty little Linux tool that lets you do just that.

Source: How to Send Your Linux Desktop Audio to a Chromecast – OMG! Ubuntu!

The tool is at github: Linux · muammar/mkchromecast Wiki  [WayBack]: mkchromecast – Cast macOS, or Linux Audio to your Google Cast Devices
